The best ways to revise would probably be to first make your revision notes using the specification so that you don't miss any key information out, and then doing lots and lots of past papers, so that you know exactly how to answer different types of questions and so that you're more familiar with the exam layout. Another thing you could do is to look at examiner reports from the GCSE bio website, so that you know which mistakes to avoid making.

Sorry, but nope.

If you are asking this to 'prepare' for any mocks you might have, please do bear in mind that you'll benefit more from the mocks if you treat them like the real exams.

If you're just looking for 2015 past papers to revise from for the actual GCSEs, then I think that they don't come out until about early May (at least for AQA, that's the case).

The main thing for GCSE biology is to know the content and be able to apply the information to different scenarios. Flash cards are really good; go through one topic a day and make flash cards on it. Once you've done this for all the topics, do many past papers to apply the knowledge (just go to the website of your exam board and you can find past papers there). Good luck c:

Past papers. You will be able to get these from the exam boards website.

Make posters and flash cards for definitions and explanations of things.
